This comprehensive collection of worsted flannels comprises classic chalk stripes, houndstooth, windowpanes and glen check designs in a series of traditional colours.
The qualities in this collection are woven from yarns that have been spun on the worsted spinning system, and are therefore more commonly known as combed flannels. Unlike carded flannels, combed flannels are less hairy, more durable and often lighter in weight making them more globally accepted.
To achieve a flannel finish the cloth has to go through a process called milling. Milling gently breaks down the cloth’s surface fibres producing a surface that is soft and fuzzy in appearance. The cloth is then carefully cropped to produce a more even texture.
Flannel fabrics are both comfortable and warm to wear, they have excellent drape and crease recovery properties making them one of the most popular choices for autumn and winter attire.
